As students, our Academic success is very paramount regardless of what we are here to do. We have paid 9k or more to come to University and it is only fair that we get value for money. Over the past year, our education has been under attack; from the government increasing fees, to Lectures providing poor assessment feedback. I have spoken to many of you who are unhappy with this and this is why I want you to elect me to be your next Vice President for Education.
I currently work for SUBU as a Part Time Volunteer and I believe I could achieve more for students academically if you vote for me.
My main priorities as your VP Education are:
Having a true University experience means having a successful academic experience.
As VP Education, I represent all students academically across both BU campuses, ensuring their academic experience at Bournemouth University is the best it can be. I live by my motto ‘Your degree cannot guarantee you success’, therefore, I will work closely with SUBU and BU staff to ensure you get the best out of your university experience.
Hi, I’m Lenrick Greaves (but most people call me Lenny), and I’m your Vice President of Education.My initial involvement with our union was during my second year of studying communications and media when I was elected to be the Black Students’ Campaign officer and the Faith Societies Officer on the activities council. These experiences ignited a passion in me to see all student thrive within the university, in which I will work extremely hard to ensure BU students not only leave BU within amazing grades but with the experience of being well-rounded individuals.I enjoy performing arts very much but, I mainly singing and occasionally act, so do not be surprised if you hear my voice from the office – I am quite loud. I also enjoy watching athletics, basketball, taking part in debates.
I can't wait to meet as many students throughout this academic year! You can find me on the first floor of SUBU, always willing to talk to you.
So, what are my favourite things about Bournemouth? Well, I love the cultural differences between living in London and Bournemouth and the fact that Bournemouth provided me with something new and interesting when I moved here. Plus, I also live 10 minutes from the beach, which is great!
